PUNK #2
$5 PPD., 8 ½ X 11, offset newsprint, glossy cover, 50pgs.
By Todd Taylor

They name Blink 182 as the 62nd top band of ‘99... It’s OK, but there seems to be a Rumpelstiltskin-esque musical chasm for Punk from 1977 to 2001; almost like nothing of note happened musically besides what their contributors were involved with.


OFF-LINE #15
$1 by mail, free to low-income, 5 ½ X 8 ½, copied, 63 pgs.
By Sean Carswell

Off-line’s a serious political zine that doesn’t shy from a fight in print. Although it borders on self-righteous indignation on occasion, there’s no denying its scholarship, passion, diction, and erudition.


MICRO-FILM #3
$3.50 ppd., 8 ½ X 11, offset glossy, 38 pgs.
By Sean Carswell

Reading Micro-Film is pleasant torture for me. It's full of interesting articles about independent films that I know I'll never get to see, but I love to read about them and think how cool it would be if the movie theater down the street showed them instead of fucking Hannibal.


JERSEY BEAT #67
$3.00 ppd., 8 ½ X 11, offset newsprint, over a hundred pages.
By Todd Taylor

The title helps you out - lots of music that’s from or coming through New Jersey. Literally thousands of reviews. All in all, a real solid musical resource that’s definitely keeping its ears to the ground and hearing the future shocks of the music world.


GARAGE AND BEAT #1
$3.50 ppd., 8 ½ X 11, offset newsprint, 46 pgs.
By Sean Carswell

I always liked Edwin's column, No Car Garage, in Flipside. He knows so much about music and has a real talent for sharing that knowledge with you without pulling the typical record collector bullshit of making you feel stupid.


EXTREME CONFORMITY #3
$3 ppd., 4 ¼ X 11, copied, 60 pgs.
By Sean Carswell

This is a fiction zine from Larry Nocella of QECE. It's a hilarious story about an art exhibit gone awry, and in a tongue and cheek manner, Nocella attacks mob mentality, censorship, the media, protests, and pretentious art fucks.




ENGINE #6
$3 ppd., 8 ½ X 11, offset newsprint, 60 pgs.
By Sean Carswell

There's a great drunken interview with Smogtown; an equally great if less drunken interview with the Stitches; a lengthy, Santaria-drenched interview with former Feederz frontman Frank Discussion; and pretty thorough coverage of various hardcore bands.


CLAMOR #6
$4 ppd., 8 ½ X 11, offset glossy, 90pgs.
By Sean Carswell

I think Clamor is trying to take the place of left leaning mags like Harper's and The Nation by not pulling any punches and covering issues from a punk rock perspective.


BOOK OF LETTERS #14
$3 ppd., 5 ½ X 8 ½, copied, 48 pgs.
By Sean Carswell

Mackin's letters to corporations are sharp, witty, and occasionally pretty deep. Some corporations are still taking the bait.


XEROGRAPHY DEBT #26
$3, screened and printed, 51 pgs.
By Joe Evans III

This is pretty much all zine reviews, columns about zines, as well as other general “beginner stuff you should know” advice.


WET CEMENT #0
$?, 5½” x 8½”, photocopied,19 pgs.
By Noah W.K.

It is rare these days to find a cool new zine that you absolutely enjoy and look forward to new issues from. However, Wet Cement is one of those.


WELCOME TO FLAVOR COUNTRY #19
$?, 5½” x 4¼”, photocopied, 37 pgs.
By Noah W.K.

Classic DIY zine with its terrible layout, columns about who knows what, and it’s so small and awkward to hold for actual reading.


URINAL GUM #9
$2, 4¼” x 5½”, photocopied, 42 pgs.
By Noah W.K.

The content inside of the zine holds my interest enough and is well written so, as its name slightly hints at, it is best used as quick toilet reading.


TRAINWRECK #8
$2/2 stamps, ¼ page, photocopied, 48 pgs.
By Daryl Gussin

It’s extremely easy to be young and dumb, but that’s why I’m always excited to see a new issue of Trainwreck.


TOM TOM #3
$30/four issue sub, 8” x 10 ½” glossy, 42 pgs.
By Lisa Weiss

One day, there won’t have to be a magazine for female drummers. But until that day, there is Tom Tom.


STANDARD ISSUE #10
$3, 8 ½” x 11”, newsprint
By Lisa Weiss

Lots of zines will provide you with information about bands and their tours, but what about an A-W listing of new diseases you can catch while on tour, watching a touring band, or an amazing amount of ailments that have their origins in the bathroom?


SLICE HARVESTER #1
$3, 5½” x 8½”, photocopied, 34 pgs.
By Noah W.K.

Read this zine, eat some pie, and live. 


STITCHING TOGETHER, $3
5½” x 8½”, offset, 16 pgs.
By Lisa Weiss

Did you know that the first Kermit was made out of halves of ping pong balls and Henson’s mother’s coat?


SCAM #7
$3, 5½” x 8½”, photocopied with letterpress cover, 64 pgs.
By Lisa Weiss

Miami always conjures up images of white sport coats, cocaine, and an airport full of rude Latin American nouveau riche on their way to Disney World. Social justice was not the first thing to come to my mind when I picked up Scam #7, The Return to Miami.


RITSHAG #8
donations, 5½” x 8½”, photocopied, 32 pgs.
By Noah W.K.

I agree with one thing above all else in this magazine: Much like the writer, “I Can’t Go for That” by Hall and Oates, is a song I must control my urge to dance to every time it comes on.


MYLENE ZINE, THE, VOL. 2 #2
$?, 5” x 8”, glossy cover and content, ? pgs.
By Kurt Morris

This zine is a vehicle for the record label, The Mylene Sheath. Nothing wrong with that as many record labels started as zines (Touch & Go, Second Nature, etc.)


MAP OF FOG #2
$2, 5 ½” x 8 ½”, photocopied, 26 pgs.
By Craven

A zine centered around San Francisco, in which the author reports on going to a Dungeons & Dragons group, one he found by looking around on the internet.


LOSERS WEEPERS #1
7” x 7”, printed, $5, 44 pgs.
By Steve Hart

It’s graphic and crude, but the comic is well-drawn and funny


HOW TO MAKE SOAP WITHOUT BURNING YOUR FACE OFF
$2, 8 ½” x 5 ½”, offset, 12 pgs.
By Lauren Trout

If the author cares enough about not permanently disfiguring me, then I care enough to read her zine.


GHSTS N GUITARS
$3, 4½” x 5¾”, photocopied, 16 pgs.
By Noah W.K.

Sixteen pages about “riding the rails.” Boring.
